Stuffed Tomato Pots


by: Reshmi Ahmed

If you are a rice-eater and are bored of serving the same things over and over, here is a different way of presenting it. The good thing about this recipe is you could use a variety of combination of vegetables with the rice ! There are not much spices involved, the natural flavor of olive oil is sufficient enough to give a rich taste. I generally use olive oil in most of my cooking for its health benefits . Here in this recipe, I have used Minced Meat to give a stomach-full feeling.
